Review: Burning Sage (Love Among the Ruins #1) by Deena Remiel

Sage Wilcot, an accomplished scientist, has set her sights on her lifelong obsession, studying the volcanos of the island of Santorini. Once there, though, she gets more than she bargained for. The dormant volcano is waking and shaking things up in the process.

An enigmatic stranger—from a mythical ancient city—comes to her rescue and challenges her to believe in the unbelievable. Will she take the huge leap of faith for love’s sake or stay cloistered in her fortress of certainty and solitude?

Mythology and science combine in an earth-shattering way in Burning Sage by Deena Remiel.

Sage Wilcot’s belief in fairy tale endings and true love falls apart when her marriage fails, and she builds a barrier around her heart. Now, Sage only believes in things she can prove with science. Sage has an engaging conversational style that contains a touch of a colorful language, that alone drew her character to me. After securing a trip to Santorini, the volcanic island she has always wanted to revisit, Sage encounters Emmanouel, a prince from the lost land of Atlantis. Remiel’s vivid and lush descriptions make you feel like you are on that volcanic island experiencing everything. Sage’s attraction to Emmanouel and his beautiful eyes is instantaneous. As Emmanouel tells Sage his story, she realizes that science cannot prove everything, and the ice around her heart begins to crack and let love back in. The sexual chemistry between them sizzles, as their intimate encounter is explosive.

Can a scientist give up the scientific method and believe in true love? In this case, the answer is an unequivocal yes! With a masterful blend of captivating characters, mythology, and fairy tales in a modern romance, Burning Sage is a spellbinding love story that is not to be missed.

I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
